A London ice-cream parlor was threatened with a lawsuit this week in response to a flavor they created called “Baby Gaga,” which is made with human breast milk. The parlor, called The Icecreamists, debuted the flavor two weeks ago and since have been sent a letter by Lady Gaga’s lawyer asking them to remove her name from the product.

The legal letter accused Icecreamists owner Matt O’Conner of using Gaga’s name to promote the controversial product. “The references you are making to Lady Gaga are thus clearly deliberate and intended to take advantage of her reputation and good will,” wrote an attorney from the law firm of Mishcon de Reya.

The law firm also stated that “associating the Lady Gaga mark with a food product which may be unsafe for human consumption (owing to the risk of it carrying such viruses as hepatitis) is also highly detrimental.”

Baby Gaga has caused a stir in England because of fear it may spread hepatitis to consumers. The product, as Gaga’s lawyers say, is “deliberately provocative and, to many people, nausea-inducing.”

Interesting.

We’re just surprised Gaga hadn’t thought of the breast-milk ice cream idea first, considering her flair for creating products inspired by bodily fluids.

    Isn’t it generally accepted that babies say “gaga”? That’s a reasonable defense. Should Sting (nevermind Gerber)sue Lady Gaga for using his lyrics “A-goo-goo-goo, A-ga-ga-ga, is all I want to say to you”? It’s not called “Baby Lady Gaga” THAT would be over the line.

    It’s so funny that when Lady Gaga isn’t starting the outlandish attention seeking spectacle, it’s unacceptable. I thought she was an artist pushing the new media boundaries? This doesn’t fit that self-description.

    Yes, I’ll take questions…you in the front, the idiot in the meat-dress, go ahead…

      I had basically the same thought.

      I mean thoughts of human breast milk naturally leads to thoughts of babies. And ‘ga-ga’ has been stereotypical baby talk for at least decades.

      Will she sue companies that make Lady Finger cookies next?

      I almost wouldn’t be surprised to find out that she is being paid by this company to sue them so they will get mentioned in the MSM.

      shes suing because they are saying tht this is the baby gaga, get it?? lady gaga, baby gaga. it would be different if it was something else like goo-goo-ga-ga ice cream, then it would be like lady fingers. if you cant figure out the reference they are making to lady gaga, by calling this ice cream the newborn version of gaga, then im suprised you had the brains to write such interesting but stupid replies. face it, your hating cause you know lady gaga is right, and you just hate it when someone so talented and famous is right. right?

      and to whoever wrote this artiicle… whtever shes making tht is inspired by bodily fluids is INSPIRED but bodily fluids, not MADE by bodily fluids

      Yes I’ll take questions… you in the front, the idiot with no brains, go ahead…

        “…they are saying tht this is the baby gaga…”

        Really? And where do they say this? Do they use a figure like a baby lady gaga? Do they use music similar to hers?

        Oh and the most important questions. How long have you been a legal expert? And do you know any tactic other than ad hominem attacks, like maybe some facts?

    dude i dont get how u dont understand wht they are trying to say, naming it baby gaga is like naming it Mr.gaga or Ms.gaga, or Sir gaga. and who made YOU a legal expert??
